Weekend Recipe: Gingerbread!

This recipe is Sarah’s co-worker Karen’s grandmother’s.

Wow, that’s a lot of apostrophes. I could have said “recipe’s” instead of “recipe is” and gotten in 4, even.

Anyway.

Ginny’s Gingerbread

½ cup sugar

½ cup butter or lard

1 egg

1 cup Molasses (Brer Rabbit dark)

2 ½ cups flour

1 ½ teas. Soda

1 teas. Cinnamon

1 teas. Ginger

½ teas. Cloves

½ teas. salt

1 cup very hot water

Mix all ingredients except water. Add hot water last and mix up again.

Bake in a 9” by 13” greased pan at 325o F. for about 30 minutes.
